Perennials are those fabulous plants you see and just fall in love with. Perennials add colour, structure and form to your garden beds.

There are a range of perennials on offer from evergreen (year round interest), semi evergreen (will remain evergreen in warmer climates, though don’t grow much through winter) and herbaceous (have a rest period during the year, usually winter where they die down to just a crown in dormancy before remerging in spring). Each type has major advantages in your garden beds. They are easy to use and each comes with detailed, easy to apply growing instructions.

Salvias

Grow Salvias in a sunny location in well drained soil. These Salvias are dry tolerant once established and look wonderful in beds, borders or dry gardens. They have a vigorous growth and are easy care.

Dead head spent flowers on Salvias, after the first flush to encourage re-bloom. A semi evergreen to herbaceous variety which should be pruned hard in early spring.

Delphiniums

Delphiniums are real floral charmers. Fertilise them well and you will soon be inundated with flowers. Delphiniums have a special cottage charm that is hard to say no to.

Aquilegia

Aquilegia are cottage garden champions, they bring bouquets of beautiful blooms to the garden. The flowers open at the perfect time to bridge the gap between the spring and summer seasons.

In addition to flowers they also offer soft, fern like foliage which is a beautiful feature in itself.

Foxgloves

Foxgloves are cottage garden stalwarts. They bloom magnificently late in the season bringing height and colour to your beds. Foxgloves, or Digitalis look best grouped toward the middle or back of a bed, where their upright stems of blossoms add stunning colour.

Astilbe

Astilbe are magnificent plants for shady border where their lacy foliage and upright plumes put on a fabulous show. They are versatile however, and if you have an area that gets good moisture you can grow Astilbe in full sun. A great idea is to grow a range of Astilbe for a long lasting show.

Marguerite Daisies

Marguerite Daisies are garden classics. They flower and flower and flower and flower and flower! In fact they are in flower nearly all year, especially in warmer climes. They are useful for adding low maintenance colour in sunny spots.

Marguerite Daisies form neat mounds of fine, evergreen foliage. The main flush of flowers is spring and summer with spot flowering the rest of the year. The blooms are perfect for picking and will easily last a week or two in a vase.

African Daisies

These vigorous, well branched cultivars of African Daisies grow to form a rounded sub shrub with flowers from spring to autumn. Their compact habit lends well in pots and sunny borders, providing a nice pop of reliable colour where you need it.

African Daisies have been around the traps for time eternal, but the older varieties have been far surpassed by these new varieties. They have been bred for more flowers and vigour and they don’t disappoint. They are perfect for filling sunny spots.

Clematis

The rambling tendrils of these large flowering Clematis will happily wind their way through shrubs, trees, trellises, fences, pergolas and more. They are low maintenance and will flower through spring and autumn.

Jackmanii Clematis will bring a dazzling display to your garden. You can use them to make a statement in beds or pots. These easy care climbers grow best with their roots in the shade and their 'heads' in the sun.

Climbers

Climbers are such versatile garden plants. They don’t take up a lot of space on the ground, yet their effects can reach 10m or more of dazzling display. Most are quick to establish and don’t even require pruning.

Climbers are an easy choice to cover a garden wall, trellis or fence. You can even use them through trees and shrubs to add interest through the seasons.

Others

Adding perennials to your garden enables you to create stunning shows throughout the seasons. There is an almost endless supply of form and colour to choose from and one for almost every situation.

Plant your perennials in autumn and spring to give them time to settle in to the garden before the extremes of summer and winter. Water them in well and keep the water up to them until they establish. As they settle in they will become less needy and you can just relax and enjoy them.

Fuchsias

Dianthus are renown for their extensive flowering season ease of care and durability. Plant Dianthus Jolt Series in beds, along pathways, underneath roses, in pots or rockeries. Dianthus has a lovely cottage feel. The mounding foliage is tidy and forms dense, green clumps.
